Frank McAvennie: West Ham United should avoid bringing in Chelsea striker Armando Broja
We’re delighted to welcome former West Ham United striker Frank McAvennie as our exclusive columnist. Each week he’ll be giving his views on the biggest talking points at the London Stadium…
Frank McAvennie is unsure whether West Ham United target Armando Broja is the right fit choice to solve the Hammers striker shortage this summer.
Sky Sports had reported on Tuesday 21 June, that the Irons are set to step up their interest in the Albanian striker, with Moyes an admirer of the 20-year-old striker.
However, despite the striker having a good season on loan at Southampton, McAvennie is not sold on the Chelsea youngster.
“He’s not getting a game at Chelsea and I’ve not really seen him play because he’s never had a game,” McAvennie told West Ham Zone.
“You don’t want to bring someone to the club who isn’t getting a game.
“It is hard to gauge what a player is like in under-23 matches.
“David Moyes has a lot of contacts, so I have no doubt that when he brings a player in he will be the right fit for the club.
“He will be speaking to people and finding out about the player.
“Michail Antonio needs a break at times so hopefully whoever they bring in will be the right fit.”
David Moyes has added Morocco defender Nayef Aguerd to his ranks already this summer, with Alphonse Areola likely to follow the 26-year-old to the London Stadium.
However, West Ham fans are craving a marquee attacking addition with the Moyes likely to ramp up his transfer business in the coming weeks.
